Isaiah 13:20

It will never be inhabited, Nor will it be settled from generation to generation; Nor will the Arabian pitch tents there, Nor will the shepherds make their sheepfolds there.

അതിൽ ഒരുനാളും കുടിപാർപ്പുണ്ടാകയില്ല; തലമുറതലമുറയോളം അതിൽ ആരും വസിക്കയുമില്ല; അറബിക്കാരൻ അവിടെ കൂടാരം അടിക്കയില്ല; ഇടയന്മാർ അവിടെ ആടുകളെ കിടത്തുകയും ഇല്ല.

Numbers 1:52

The children of Israel shall pitch their tents, everyone by his own camp, everyone by his own standard, according to their armies;

യിസ്രായേൽമക്കൾ ഗണംഗണമായി ഔരോരുത്തൻ താന്താന്റെ പാളയത്തിലും ഔരോരുത്തൻ താന്താന്റെ കൊടിക്കരികെയും ഇങ്ങനെ കൂടാരം അടിക്കേണം.

Deuteronomy 1:33

who went in the way before you to search out a place for you to pitch your tents, to show you the way you should go, in the fire by night and in the cloud by day.

രാത്രി അഗ്നിയിലും പകൽ മേഘത്തിലും നിങ്ങൾക്കു മുമ്പായി നടന്ന നിങ്ങളുടെ ദൈവമായ യഹോവയെ നിങ്ങൾ വിശ്വസിച്ചില്ല.
